I live in El Dorado, Arkansas. I received my Bachelor degree in Mass Media / Communications in 1993. I have held various positions within the communications field over the past nearly 23 years. I have been employed with my current company, a Fortune 500 international oil and gas company, for nearly 18 years and serve as the Manager of Global Communications, a position I took on in 2014. I manage internal communications and community relations.
I am married and my husband and I have two daughters - ages 13 and 10. We spend a lot of time on the soccer field watching our girls play and we love to go camping. I teach a two-year-old Sunday School class at my church and serve as a mentor to two elementary-age girls through a school mentoring program.
I earned my Master of Science degree in Strategic Communications from Purdue in August, 2016. I never thought I would want to go back to school, but finding this program at Purdue changed my mind and it has been a wonderful experience!
